Arteta warns: Arsenal must not squander the winter transfer period

Arsenal FC will resume play in England as leaders. Coach Mikel Arteta would like to take advantage of the place in the table in order to be able to take advantage of the currently favorable situation with important winter transfers.

Arsenal went into the winter break five points clear of second-placed Manchester City. A result that was not to be expected before the season in the form.

Now the Londoners don't want to rest on their laurels, nor hide their grown ambitions to finally become champions again. With the transfer window approaching, Mikel Arteta made it clear that Arsenal cannot afford to oversleep this phase.

On the contrary: The coach believes that further reinforcements are needed to be able to defend first place. The focus is on another winger and a midfielder.

"We will be active," Arteta made unequivocally clear (via Telegraph). Next: "And being active means that we want to further strengthen the team. The team cannot yet afford the luxury of not having to get the most out of every transfer phase."

It is "really important" that the staff is refilled. "But it also has to be the right profile. It has to be the right player who takes us to a new level," the coach continued.

In his opinion, the January transfer will also be so important because there have been many coach changes recently. Therefore, various changes are to be expected because teams are reorganized and new types of players are prioritized. "But we know that, we're prepared for that," said the 40-year-old.
